here. maybe colder than expected. i'm sure it was forecast right to a t by doug kammerer, chief meteorologist out here. this is october weather, man. the end of october weather. >> that's exactly right. you talk about that, not colder than expected, by the way. what are you trying to do to me? >> of course not. >> you knew what it was going to be. >> that's what happens in october baseball. we haven't experienced that here in the washington, d.c. area. it's really quite amazing. you've seen some games in october that actually have snow associated with them. some of the later games, the nlds, and of course the world series. let's hope we get to there. we wouldn't mind dealing with more cold weather. but you said you sat down and said, it's legitimately cold out here. >> it's because of the wind. i think you said it's about 20 miles an hour. i'm curious how it will affect the pitching. >> it will affect the pitching, and maybe the hitting, too. 58 with the winds out of the north at 16, but gusting to 25 miles an hour. that wind will make it a lot cooler through the night. current
pleasant. doug kammerer is up in the weather center to tell us about more changes coming up. >> the sunshine helped to push numbers to about 70 degrees. but yeah, we've got cooler knobs moving in. out there right now, 68 gregs, winds out of of the southwest at 9 miles an hour. actually, a very pleasant evening, after what was a spectacular afternoon. look at the temperatures, though, to the north and west. much cooler as we have the front moving in. 59 in gaithersburg. still 70 manassas and 67 towards pax river. temperatures overnight will be quite cool. but just wait until you see how cool we're going to be in the next couple of days. >>> coming up, a 14-year-old girl is singled out by the taliban and hunted down after school. now an entire country is erupting in support of a teenager who's fighting for her life. >>> the life of a firefighter is part of a new nbc drama, but d.c.'s fire chief said the real work goes well beyond just fighting fires. >>> and a fisherman who fell overboard is saved, but the rescue mission didn't end there. >>> history made today as washington h
. and doug schoen a former pollster for bill clinton and a fox news contributor. none of you are women, i am and you're experts and we vote on the same things. dog, what do you make about this move? >> martha where your introduction went is exactly where i would begin. bottom line people are voting on the economy. the democrats have tried to make a so-called republican war on women, abortion, contraception, the centerpiece of the campaign, and bluntly it's not working. the gallop poll and other data is showing that women are moving directly to governor romney and they are showing that that movement is because of concerns about the economy. so bottom line, the economy triumphs social issues and that's what we are seeing right now. martha: let's fake a look at a couple of the polls you just mentioned before we bring you in, brad, so we can get your thoughts on them. the first one we have here is likely swing state voters, who would do a better job handling the deficit and the debt. you've got governor romney with a very comfortable margin there 52% over 43% and you can see why they are talking
picture is much more grim than the democrats would like for the public to believe. doug mcelway is live for us in washington and it sounds like the political debate got started with a controversial tweet on twitter from former head of ge, jack welch. >> welch is one of america's most rebe inspected former ceo's. so when he tweets, people tend to listen. within minutes of the jobs report he tweeted quote, unbelievable jobs numbers. this chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so change numbers and facing a torrent of criticism for that. welch stopped by his tweet and those numbers. >> this whole number is made up of a whole mess of an assumptions who is participating and who is not working and who is trying to work, but dropped out. all of these things, it just raises the question, oh, i think there ought to be a good discussion about how this number is calculated. >> and most analysts aren't dismissing his crimsism as utterly without evidence and at the same time pointing out that the jobs numbers reflect an obama policy that has the economy stuck in neutral. >> they had full charge
it have no effect on your vote choice? >> reporter: well, so do we. but who to ask? the pollsters? doug schwartz runs quinnipiac universitys polling institute. >> right now, pew has romney up by three points. gallup has obama up by five points in their seven-day track, but since the debate they have obama up by just three points. >> reporter: or how about old friend ray fair, an economist we've been visiting every four years since the george h.w. bush administration. he's got an economic model. >> so right at this moment, its 49.5% of the two-party vote for obama. >> reporter: so the polls and models call it a toss-up. but curiously, the betting public tells a very different story. online betting prediction markets, like ireland's intrade, which takes bets from americans, and england's betfair, which doesnt, have made obama the strong favorite for months. the lone domestic and entirely legal betting haven, the iowa electronic maets at the university of iowa. ever frugal, we asked hari srinivasan, our man in the midwest-- at least last week-- to drop in. >> sreenivasan: this is the entir
models are sold out and there is a two-woek delay. prices start at $329. >>> in sports a moment for doug fi.so awful. took that line drive off his skull in the second inning. fister would be okay. he would continue to pitch. i don't know how, but the giants score late to win 2-0, take a 2-0 lead in the best of seven riw york facing every parent's nightmare, a woman they trusted with their three children now accused of stabbing two of those kids to death. upper west soid mother returned home to find her oldest two children stabbed and the nanny on the floor nearby, unconscious and bleeding. deb feyerick has been following this story. you always want to ask why. but maybe we'll never know. >> yeah. and that's what's so tragic about this. i with was looking at pictures and entries on the blog that the mom kept documenting her children. this with his a truly happy, happy family. and you can stng to this mom. the questn, why did this nanny apparently snap and do something so terrible as police allege? she's in critical condition right now under arrest. because she's sedated she has not yet be
. there'll be a public hearing on october 31st. the full council november 15th. crews may have doug to deep into the bridge over 65. a class action lawsuit is being filed today on behalf of victims who say they were tortured by former chicago police commander jon burge. lawyers representing the men say their clients are still in prison. after giving false confessions at the hands of burge and his men more than 20- years ago. burge is currently behind bars after being convicted of lying about the torture of suspects. the lawsuit seeks to give new hearings to all of burge's alleged victims who were convicted as a result of the phony confessions. cook county assessor joe berrios says he'll ignore a subpoena by the county's inspector general. berrios is being ordered to explain an illegal property tax break given to one of his employees. but he's refusing to hand over the paperwork that allowed the employee to get that benefit. berrios is already fighting the county ethics board, which recently ordered him to fire his son and daughter because their hiring violated county law. berrios
. it means you are holding your own. it means you are standing still. martha: acting ratings aside. doug mcelway joins us from washington. we are hearing that film which was supposed to rally the troops within the agency cost $52,000 to make? >> reporter: $52,000 that anybody with a mac laptop and camera could put together. but that was only a small portion of what the orlando conference called. taxpayers shelled out $5 million. that's five times the amount spent on the general services administration notorious conference in las vegas that caused so much outrage on capitol hill. the va's top human resource manager resigned in a statement he said, quote, i resign because i did not want to be a distraction for the administration, or the secretary and the va, especially as they continue to work each day to address the urgent needs our nation's veterans. the oig is investigating allegations that 11 employees illegally accepted gift such as helicopter, stretch limo rides, hotel rooms, concert tickets, spa treatments and gift baskets. martha: you would have thought given the story you referenc
maker that got some 250 million tax dollars is filing for bankruptcy. and doug mcelway has more for us from washington on this. >> reporter: the name of the company is a123, a waltham, massachusetts outfit that specializes in lithium ion batteries. it built three plants in 2010 to take advantage of the state's huge tax breaks for battery manufacturers. vice president joe biden hailed the $249 million tax grant to the company. he said with recovery act projects like this we are starting to turn the page on a decade of failed economic policies, end quote. president obama phoned the company at a 2010 celebration. >> i am calling to congratulate a123 systems on this tremendous milestone. as you said thanks to the recovery act, you guys are the first american factory to start high volume production of advanced vehicle batteries. i met with david and some of the a123 team here in the white house back in april, and it's incredibly exciting to see ho*uf you guys have come since we announced these grants just over a year ago. >> reporter: despite hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer supp
in that. back to you guys. >> doug luzader live in washington. thank you. >>> the president's foreign policy is what newt gingrich is talking about this morning. taking a harsh stance against the president about how he is handling the attacks on the libyan consulate and the approach on radical islam. >> what is there about barack obama's psychology that makes it so difficult for him to deal with the reality of extremism? why is it always the west's fault? why is it always somebody in america's fault? why is he always apologizing for islamic extremists? i think this is a very serious question about the whole nature of his approach to that part of the world. second, this has been consistent from the united nations ambassadors going on 5 different shows telling the american people a false hood on the sunday after the attack to vice president biden on the national debate who repeatedly misleading the american people to the president last night misleading the american people. the larger question you have a president of the united states who is commander-in-chief will not be honest with him
, but i have also been worse. >> reporter: livestrong chairman and sew doug oleman assured the 4,300 riders in austin the organization will live on without armstrong as chairman. >> this is bigger than any one of us. it's about a movement of people coming together to truly change the world. >> you're livestrong, i'm livestrong. >> reporter: that's four women are cancer survivors and armstrong supporters. paula, monica, and jean ann are riding in the challenge. lawyer rae's treatment ended just four weeks ago. >> he was able to fund survivorship in a way nobody else has been able to do before. >> >> he overcame cancer to return to his profession, being a professional athlete and then used that success to further the cause of cancer around the world. that's a story to me. >> reporter: experts estimate that lance armstrong might lose up to $200 million now that his big sponsors have dropped out, nike, radio shack, trek, but those companies say they'll continue to support livestrong. however, some individual donors to the organization say they've been duped. >> the results that mr. a
at a conference in 2010. doug mckelway is following it arrive in washington. doug? >> gregg, one of the features of that conference in orlando last year was the presentation of a parody film, a takeoff on the classic "patton." it was designed to motivate va employees. here's a snippet of the film. >> one of the worse mistakes you can make in carrying out your mission is getting the idea in your head that stability is a virtue. stability is not a virtue, it's a trap. it means you're holding your own, you're standing still. >> reporter: the film goes on with interviews of va employees and beneficiaries. it cost $52,000 to produce that little 15-minute film. it was shown only twice. yet that price tag is only a fraction of the cost of the overall conference. the va billed taxpayers over $5 million for the conference, that's more than five times what that notorious xsa conference -- gsa conference in vegas cost. what's more, just as with the gsa, the va inspect general's report found investigators were lousy at keeping track of their expenses. quote: >> reporter: a day before this damaging ig report
by the taliban. doug is live in dc with the preview of what he's going to say today. doug? >> good morning. this is the romney campaign trying to set the agenda and be more aggressive, especially in the wake of the debate that a lot of people thought mitt romney won. look how close this race is getting. through four key swing states, all within the margin of error, little doubt as to why the romney campaign would choose this last one, virginia, to deliver this big foreign policy address today. romney is probably going to touch on the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya last month. he may get into the ongoing crisis in syria, iran's nuclear ambition u name it. there is also afghanistan with the war there now entering its 12th year and almost on cue, we're hearing from the taliban with new reports this morning that they are mocking u.s. foreign policy, saying u.s. and nato forces are preparing to flee afghanistan in disgrace. romney is expected to call the withdrawal of u.s. force has politically timed retreat. >> for the last four years, we've had a foreign policy led by a president who b
was actually accurate? doug mckelway live in washington with a fact check for us. >> reporter: good morning, jon. there was a lot of loose play with the facts. let's start with questioner candy crowley permitted. >> in what ways you do intend to correct in the workplace, females making 72% what they earned. >> reporter: that 72% figure is a myth endured for years. the census bureau admitted as much last month. >> we don't have a way to measure equal pay for equal work. we compare full-time earnings for year-round work between men and women. >> reporter: in fact census data are a rough measure of women's wages versus all men wages without kind of jobs they choose to accommodate needs for families. a fact challenge that came up regarding taxes. >> he was on "60 minutes" just two weeks ago and he was asked, is it fair for somebody like you, making $20 million a year to pay a lower tax rate than a nurse or a bus driver, somebody making $50,000 a year? and he said yes, i think that's fair. >> reporter: the president there is comparing romney's investment income tax to payroll taxes for that bus
in texas. joining us from new york. doug, of course, good to see you here. "the rolling stones" cover has the president, you say, excessively cautious and perhaps a survival trait because at this time really nobody wants to make any kind of off remark to derail their own campaign. this was really the same kind of criticism that he faced when i covered him back in 2008. why do you think that he is so cautious right now as opposed to getting us a little something different? >> well, you know, it's -- he is very aware of the new media culture where any moment there's -- something is on youtube or an off the cuff remark gets picked up. i think he is cautious about that. i did my interview with him for 45 minutes in the oval office, and i try to get him on things, talking a little more about what went wrong in denver. that was kind of tough to do. when i switched gears and talked about history, about what he thinks about how the look at obama care, does he like the term, what would he call his policies put together, and he calls it the fair shake or thinks that that's okay. i was able to make
one is a town hall, and most of the questions will come from the audience. doug brinkley is with us from austin, texas. he is a presidential historian, teaches history at rice university, and i understand as well you are actually going to be delivering a pre-debate lecture atofstra university just in the next couple of days to really get people a sense of what this means and how this could impact the race. tell us a little bit about what you think about the town hall format. >> well, that's right. first of all, these are a great boon for our university. hofstra, to be a student there and to have all this excitement coming here to campus. the town hall format, i think it's much better than what we saw with the last one. at least you feel that the -- in this case president obama and mitt romney are going to be actually looking at citizens. now, it's become very scripted over the years. in 1992 it was the wild west in these town halls, meaning somebody from the audience can ask a question. now they've been prescreened to the point that it is a little bit less open formed than one might
to come out swinging this time, doug. >> i think that is the consensus. to use the president's generally regarded lack luster performance in the first debate, coupled with the vice president's, some say overly aggressiveness in the vp debate the president needs to make a stronger case for a second term. the momentum is now with romney and ryan. the only way to block that momentum barring an obtain surprise may be for the president to decisively win tuesday's debate. >> i think he's going to be aggressive in making the case for his view of whether we should go as a country, and a country that is built around a growing, thriving middle class not this top down theory that governor romney has. >> there is one potentially very big obstacle to achieving that, however, this next debate is a town hall style debate with undecided voters picked by the gallop polls asking the questions with the moderator asking the follow-up. they tend to lean towards social issues, because citizen questioners often relate their personal antidotes or circumstances. to be aggressive in such a form can be off putting
can. megyn: joining me now, doug schoen, former advisor to president bill clinton, pat cad dale, -- pat caddel, former vice sore to president jimmy carter. both co-hosts on fox news channel, sunday at -- >> 5:30 p.m. megyn: what is really going on here? this got started with vice president joe biden's comments at the debate saying we didn't know the folks at in libya were requesting for security and it spiraled from there. what is really happening, doug? >> we have 25 days to go until the election the obama administration is trying to foist off blame and responsibility, whether it be now the state department, before it was the intelligence community. they're using what i call the sergeant schultz defense, i know nothing. that is what they're trying to do. vice president biden said we didn't know. they have spun that into the white house, not the administration. and bottom line, they're trying to get through the next three weeks plus. megyn: in the mind of the voter does it make any difference whether hillary clinton knew and barack obama didn't, or is it just the administration
: doug savant takes pride in playing a gay character, one of the first on network tv, years before "will & grace." i'm proud to be part of the history of gay characters in network television. he was marginalized. but he existed. he was the only one in network television. it was an important step. we have come a long way for that. >> wait, did you call him tom? >> oh, matt. i was -- tom was -- tom was "desperate housewives." >> reporter: i found it a little different to interview my own husband. if the show was so great and the backstage, you know, was just so much fun and everything about it was great, why did you leave acting? >> i wanted to move back east and be a businessman. i just had plan to meet you. i figured if i'm not back east, i'm never going to meet the love of my life, and it happened. >> good answer. nicely done. >> oh, you can see why i married him. he's so sweet. >> what a keeper. >> so smooth. >> he is. he always knows exactly what to say. i hadn't seen that. >> that was fantastic. >>> one more check of the weather from sam. >> good morning, everybody. we're upstairs in
's squawk on the street david faber, and doug lebda. good to have you both onboard this morning. it seems to me housing always seems like a separate issue that maybe didn't get talked about as much. is that retrospectively incorrect? because it does seem so fundamental, david. >> it's fundamental in the economy in many ways. certainly helped us during the boom period in housing that we saw adding to gdp, construction, and so many other things. people refinancing their homes. it hasn't been discussed that much, you're right, particularly given that the president seems to have backed off a bit, perhaps, on a number of plans that would've relieved people from mortgages that they otherwise are not in a great position to pay but there was a lot of political opposition to that. but housing is starting to come back. we are starting to see real signs of not just stabilization but even perhaps some growth. doug can speak, i'm sure, to some more of the specifics about what we're seeing, but even new home sales, existing home sales, and prices finally have not just stabilized. >> steve rattner? >> t
to build on his momentum coming out of that first debate. doug mcelway live in washington with a preview. >> reporter: good afternoon. the thinking is the president really needs to make a stronger case for his second term after what is regarded as a poor performance during the first presidential debate. with numerous polls showing the race is a dead heat and the momentum shifting to the romney-ryan ticket the president needs to make a strong showing tomorrow night but that is harder to do in a town hall format, where undecided voters picked the gallop organization ask the questions. if it is too aggressive it can be off putting to the questioners and viewers. david objection he elro axelrod will be aggressive in making the case for where the country should go. >> we saw governor romney sort of walk away from his own proposals, and certainly the president is going to be willing to challenge him on it, as we saw the vice president challenge paul ryan. >> reporter: but that is going to work both ways. look for governor romney to challenge the president on the administration's shifting respo
doug says about the defense spending. the sequester i don't think that you were in the room for that as far as i can tell and a was an interesting story to tell and as someone could go back and just do a google's search for the number of republican leaders that stood up for the sequestered. no one thinks it should come into effect. it was never supposed to come into effect and quite frankly the vice presidential candidate congressman ryan supported this and the budget control and the cuts are so devastating that he would also agree the fiscal strength is probably important abroad as well and economic strength, and i don't know how an additional $2 trillion in spending on defense that is on paid for with of the additional assets that you are talking about that no one in the pentagon has asked for except for perhaps the four advisers that do not serve on the campaign. the amazing things to take a number and then build it, a builder can pan around it instead of designing a strategy of which you build the defense philosophy around that. >> first on iran, mr. romney actually beli

: good morning, doug. >> guest: >> caller: good morning. romney seems more enthusiastic about amin the hands of the israelis. it is a war crime under geneva to attack another country without united nations vote in a chapter seven resolution. faq reminds you george bush is not adverse to travel to switzerland because i the universal jurisdiction. or we just like to see this question gets asked when the united states. i thought, bye. just to be an interesting question to hear the response. i would point out that it's not always a violation of international law to avoid or attack a country with a chapter seven resolution. there is a universal way of self-defense. so i remind the caller that if one country invades another, while that may be of the call, the country that has -- that is fighting back event in violation of anything. >> host: matthew labors labored apiece. what matters israel, looking how both candidates are eager to show their loyalty and close ties with israel. how is that plain out and do expect that to be a big topic play now? >> guest: i think that romney will try to
to actually happen then, and what are some areas where you can see a comprise happening? >> doug, you want to start? >> sure. i think it's important to recognize that really three different issues involved, and the first is the literally the fiscal cliff. the end of the tax increases and spending cuts that will happen on auto pilot. which i view as a tremendous threat to the economy. it's a recipe for recession. we have a weak economy that is moving side ways a the moment at best. and that's the issue we're going to face in the lame duck. that's the debt limit. it's going to be a february, administer issue. my own view you should keep it as far away from the fiscal cliff you can. there's nothing good that comes of intermixing the two. the third, the deal. which is we have to have a deal for the fundamental tax reforms and entitlement reforms so we have a debt burden sustainable for the future and -- we don't have that. so the lame duke, just focus on those. you shouldn't intermix the debt ceiling and pretended you're going get a deal. i think that's a mistake. and the whole job of the fisc
behind that and speak about it confidently. host: good morning, doug. caller: romney seems more enthusiastic about bombing iran under the behest of the israelis. it is a war crime to do that without a united nations security council chapter 7 resolution, and george bush was recently advised not to travel to switzerland because of the laws of universal jurisdiction. i would like to see this question asked at the debate. guest: it would be an interesting question to hear the responses. i would point out that it is not always a violation of international law to invade or attack a country without a chapter 7 resolution. there is the universal right of self-defense. i would remind the caller that if one country invaded at wor -- it's another, that may be illegal, but the country fighting back is not in violation of anything. host: matthew lee, you recently wrote a piece about how the countries are eager to show close ties with israel. do you expect this to be a big topic on monday night? guest: i think that mitt romney will try to expand on this idea that he brought up in the clip yo
